The Duke of Cambridge will be handed the highest honour in Scotland in the Capital this summer.
He will be made a Royal Knight of the Thistle by the Queen during her stay at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in July.
William will attend the ceremony, expected to be held at St Giles’ Cathedral.
The Order of the Thistle is second only in precedence in the UK to the Order of the Garter.
A St James’ Palace spokesman said the duke, who has the Scottish title the Earl of Strathearn, was “very honoured”.
